Just a reminder .The next session will be on Monday September 5th.Traditional English Irish Scottish music.As in July it will be a players session rather than a sing a round or solo performers event.I know Hull has some talented players who seem to have dissapeared from the local sessions,please spread the word.Thank you to all those who supported Bassic and I in July and hope to see you all next week.

To help any future "out of town" visitors who dont know "The Black Boy", here are some directions.

Entering Hull from the west via M62/A63 or from Humber Bridge. Continue along A63 "Clive Sullivan Way" towards Hull town centre along the Humber bank. Pass "Smith and Nephew" factory on the right and go straight across the large roundabout with trafic lights next to "Toys are Us". Pass the Marina on the right and at the next big junction, turn left at the traffic lights just before the large bridge over the River Hull. After about 100 yards turn right down the side of "Argos" and then turn left at the "T" junction. You should now be on "High Street" and the Black Boy is about 50 yards on the left, just past the Irish theme pub which is on the right.

Do any of you in Hull know Denny who used to be friends with the scavengers. last I heard many years ago he went off to japan with a concertina player.

Tell him lox was asking after him if you see him, and see if he can figure out what lox is an abbreviation for. He might have better luck remembering me if he knew that I used to own a didge in E.

He knew my brother better than me, but we had a few good times nonetheless, in hull sessions as well as around glastonbury campfires.

I remember him well and wouldn't mind getting back in touch

Latest news is - we could be losing the Black Boy as a pub. The current landlord is giving up the license as he can't make it pay, and the owners - Enterprise Inns - won't let him make any changes to make the place more profitable, or sell him the leasehold. Another great pub and one that has hosted folk music sessions for over 30 years will soon close. Damn you, Enterprise Inns!

Will it just close? It seems strange they would let a premises like that stand idle, costing money. Maybe a new, folk-orientated owner will take it over, with free beer for the musos, sushi and oysters for free snacks and a free bus at the end of the night....
Ok, let's make the best of it, see you two weeks today. Or is closure more imminent?

Five weeks is about all we've got, bloke! So it seems that the next session (Monday April 6th 8pm) could very well be the last in the Black Boy. Unless, that is, someone wants to take over the lease. Otherwise it will stand as an empty monument to changing drinking patterns, the credit crunch, the smoking ban, property companies who are ruining our pubs, whatever.

So we may very well have a discussion as to where we will move the session to. If we want to stay in the Old Town we could ask at the George in Land of Green Ginger, which is also run by Dean, who provides all those nice snacks we have at the Black Boy. It's a nice old coaching inn, with one of the best addresses in the country, and the smallest window anywhere in the known universe. Or the Wellington, where we go for the other two sessions.

Additionally it will again transfer the Hull Elderly Gentlemen's Afternoon Binge Drinking Club.

That's very sad news. I used to drink there myself many years ago and, as the following clip from The Hull Packet and Advertiser March 7th 1834 shows, my family have been patrons of the pub for generations. The gentleman mentioned is my great x5 grandfather:

"John Thompson Master of the Sloop Dunn was found drowned in the Old Harbour.
The vessel was tied up at Chapel Lane staithe. George North publican of the Black Boy said the deceased had been in his pub worse for drink the previous night. He had been warned against returning to his boat, the night being so windy. His body was found in the Old Harbour having received a severe blow to the head. The body was removed to the Black Boy Public House. Verdict Accidental Death."

At least they took him back to the pub - it was probably his round!

We spoke to Dean yesterday, and he is keeping the pub, so the Black Boy session will continue as before. At this moment there are plans for a slight repainting!

The Hull Shanty thread says the Black Boy has shut. Is there any truth in the rumour?

Cant be true, as students, we spent enough money there to keep it going for at least 2 recessions. I was planning to come and investigate the session as well...

Black Boy is still closed, as far as we know, so there's no session there until further notice. If it stays closed we could consider asking the Minerva, when that reopens. Good Real Ale, view of the Humber, nice room (the former micro-brewery), entry in the Guinness Book of Records, plenty of parking...

Of course, it will depend on the landlord but I'm sure the extra takings on a Monday night will help his balance sheet.

Pippa phoned me tonight with the news. Any 'catters suffering session withdrawal symptoms welcome over the river at the Six Bells session in Barrow on Humber, every Tuesday, tomorrow (4th August) included. It's a very friendly mixed session, not at all cliquey, no bosses, just mutual respect and love of the music.

The Black Boy will be open again very soon, and so the next first Monday session is safe.

We are delighted to report that the BB is up and running under the very capable auspices of Adam the new gaffer.The quality of the real ale is excellant and varied.The new gaffer is well up for sessions on the first Monday of the month.

He's also wondering if we wanted to add another session into the monthly cycle, possibly a Wednesday or a Thursday. I said I'd ask the others, so this is me asking!
